ART VallARTA Sugar Skull Making Workshop, Oct. 28th

October 14, 2015

ART VallARTa will host a Sugar Skull Making Workshop on October 28. For additional information, please contact Nathalie Herling at nathalie(at)artvallarta.com, (322) 222-6473 ext 104, or visit artvallarta.com.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Sugar skulls, calaveras de azcar, are kind of like the mascot of El Da de Muertos. They are a symbol of death and afterlife, and are often used to decorate altars. Come to ART VallARTa on Wednesday, October 28th at 10:00 am and learn how to make your own edible Sugar Skulls for your El Da de Los Muertos Altar in Puerto Vallarta.

Nathalie Herling will teach the workshop and offer you hands on instructions so you can make your own Mexican Sugar Skulls. This workshop will be for adults and is a two-part workshop. Attendees can attend both parts or just the Sugar Skull decorating afternoon portion. Both are included in the $250 pesos ($15 USD) price. If you seriously want to know how to make Sugar skulls for future Day of the Dead celebrations, attending both the morning and afternoon workshops is recommended.


The first half of the workshop starts at 10:00 am at the ART VallARTa Studio on Calle Pilitas 213, where you will make the special sugar mixture to mold the skulls and set them up for drying. This portion of the class takes approximately 3 hours.

In the afternoon, after the skulls dry, you will return to the ART VallARTa studio to decorate them. The Day of the Dead "Food for our Ancestors" video will be playing in the background as you decorate your skulls with bright colored sugar frosting, sequins and various craft supplies, and dedicate them to the loved ones you'd like to honor. All participants will be taking home a good amount of skulls that can be used to decorate their at home altars.

Please bring your own apron so as to not get your clothing too Sugary Sweet!

Due to the popularity of their Day of the Dead Sugar Skull workshop, this year ART Vallarta will be adding, in honor of the Virgen de Guadalupe, a class on making a Sugar Guadalupe. This workshop will be held on Tuesday December 8th at 10 am and cost $350 pesos. For more information, please contact Nathalie Herling at nathalie(at)artvallarta.com, (322) 222-6473 ext 104, or visit artvallarta.com.
